The Homelessness Marathon is a live, 6 hour national broadcast about poverty and homelessness in America.
The 2nd hour begins with a feature "Not Forgotten When You Die." A remembrance
of San Francisco's poor SRO tenants. Produced by Laura Flynn.
Then we continue with "Who's In
The Emergency Shelter?"
The official emergency shelter in Brattleboro is the
Morningside Shelter. It holds a maximum
of 29 people. It is in a very large,
well-kept house in the middle of an upscale neighborhood, where it is not
always entirely welcome. The people
living here have a little more stability than the people in the overflow
shelter, but they're still homeless.
We'll meet them and hear their stories.
